  4. I like to ask for a volunteer to help me collect the money to this event.
    We do need your bank account so that we can put in some money.

    Look forward to your hand up.

  5. Should be easy to find our way la. I called up the hotel and they said to get off at Bras Basah mrt and head for the Queen Street exit. It’s a 2-min walk along Queen Street to the hotel.

    Since its so convenient why don’t you do your lunch there? Unless it’s the cost that’s holding back everybody.

  6. Karen,

    I love you for putting your hands up. I like Treasurers. Thank you

    I shall write you to ask for your working account number. Hope you can do for both the monthly gathering in the event and investment gathering in the afternoon.

    Thank you again.

  9. Wow! Terence is close to breakeven!

    I think there’s great response to the travel gathering and many SHCs are getting itchy feet… travel bug?

    I must also attend if only to meet and listen to all the travel ideas and happy wanderers’ tales.

    So Karen, expect a small amount of $27 from me soon; yes, it includes my $12 for the afternoon session on options. May I advertise my session? Attendees may get a chance to pay for their next holiday with the option idea that I’m presenting. So I’m happy for those who have signed up…we should have a rewarding time!

  10. Hi Terrance,

    we are interested to visit places such as Florence to extend our stay to do leisure ride/slow riding along d valleys…hv to miss this discussion as we are away…

  11. Hi Terence, my wife Ching Sok Tin would also like to join in this gathering. However, how much will she be paying? We were registered as members during the road show at Suntec City convention hall sometime back.Please ascertain her status and let me know the amount we have to pay. Thanks.

  12. Hi Soon Huat,

    Our records show that your wife Sok Tin is also a registered SHC member.

    Welcome to the Club. See you at the monthly gathering.

  14. I’m unable to join this month meeting as i have prior arranged appointment but I’m keen to travel to Thailand, ~ please keep me posted. Thank you.

  15. Woowee! Made it just in time otherwise I might be excluded from my own event!

    Hi Karen: please acknowledge my transfer of $27 to your account tonight at 1939 Ref: 9612.

    Thanks so much and see all you guys at the US options talk and travel exchange this Saturday!

      • Last night May monthly gathering, we had it at Hans Upper Pickering. We had 26 Pax, we book for 30 Pax.

        General view is the venue at Oxford Hotel is convenient, close to Bras Basah MRT. However, the food was found to be too tough by some members. A couple felt $15 was too high, but no one could suggest an alternate location. The venue was all to us.

        Discussions on the Eurorail travel went on. Cruises, didn’t make a group, but there were interest and talk of going Korea, Nepal, Japan and China. Well, we left the groups to pursue.

        We will keep this venue for its advantage of proximity to MRT, cost, if no other venues has similar advantages. We will also keep Hans, as long as they don’t throw us out, for not buying food and drinks from them.

        This monthly gathering is intended to cater to retired, not working and working members. Usual time 4-8.30pm weekday.

        • One interesting issue cropped up during the monthly gathering. A member turned up with his friends. However, the member said that he will join the gathering but will not pay the $15 because he has his makan at 3pm.

          This is not a new occurence, and we had similar once in a while. As EO, I decided that all participants will have to pay, as we state clearly, it’s $15 per Pax. The member left.

          Unfortunately, I couldn’t agree. Comments welcome.

          Terence Seah

  16. Terence,
    I agree with you fully regarding payment. There are always such people around. Why should anyone be shown any special favours? It’s all fair and square. Even if he has already eaten, he still has to pay like everyone else.

    He can always eat a little or if he wants to make his money’s worth, he can always ‘tar pau’ his food but only in a serviette, hahaha. I wonder how he’s going to do that with the soup?
    Sorry, I couldn’t resist saying this .;-P

  17. Si beh heng arh.. though I walk-in last min without Terence’s prior blessing but I zhi tong paid Terence without being asked…. but I went supper elsewhere later lor.. hahaha…

    On serious note… All members should know that if they want out of the box arrangement, you must get the EO’s consensus first before attending… Like that, lots of unslightly situation can be prevented lor… This is basic courtesy…

    Cheers.. Dolly

  18. Hi all SHC travel bugs!
